After the Realme 2 Pro, Realme 1 and Realme U1 has started receiving the Android Pie-based ColorOS 6 update in India. The update brings along the May Android security patch, the company revealed today. The update is being released over-the-air (OTA) in a phased manner, so it may take a few days for the update to reach all Realme 1 and U1 users. We recommend you install the update over a strong Wi-Fi connection and while the phone is on charge.
Like all Realme updates, you will get a notification for the OTA software update on your phone, and you can also check for it manually by going to Settings > System Update.
